Golf Swing Tips

To improve your golf game, it’s vital that you take golf lessons. Golf is a sport that is almost impossible to learn without some sort of guidance. Luckily, there are golf experts around the country whose job it is to teach golf. By taking golf lessons, you can drastically improve your game in a relatively short amount of time. Taking golf lessons can be an expensive, time-consuming effort. And like any good or service that will cost money and require time, you should be careful before you buy.  Golf can be a really costly game to play and it is reasonable to assume that you have invested a fair amount of money in your equipment – golf clubs, golf bag, golf balls, golf clothing, golf cart etc; – therefore doesn’t it make common sense for you to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your skills and capabilities?

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

The ” Phony-Hole Drill ” is one of my favorites for working on touch especially when the putting green is crowded. It utilizes a device I carry in my bag at all times the Phony-Hole a thin flexible circle of black rubber just smaller than the diameter of a real hole. The Phony-Hole almost looks like a real hole when it lies on the surface of a green is thin enough to let putts roll smoothly over it and comes in handy when the practice green is full of golfers and there is no open hole available. By throwing down a phony-Hole (Figure 13.2.8) you create your own target to putt to get away from the majority of the lumpy-donut effects and work on speed control by seeing if the putts you “make”(those that roll over the Phony-Hole) stop near 17 inches behind the hole.

To practice the Phony-Hole Drill mark a spot near the edge of the green with a tee then walk off the putt length you want to practice. Drop the phony-Hole and walk the same distance to the other side. Mark this spot with another tee and you are ready to putt.

The rules for the Phony-Hole Drill are the same as for one of our primary feel-development drills the 20-foot drill (for details see pages 315 and 316). The one difference is that when practicing touch with the Phony-Hole change your putt distance every time you drill.

Putting to the Phony-Hole is also good for a quick warm-up before a round. Putt three halls from opposite directions at least twice before every round you play rehearsing your routine and ritual and holding your finish to watch your putts until they stop (about 17 inches behind the Phony-Hole). You will be surprised at how quickly your touch for distance improves.

The Quality of Impact

Before we get there however I want you to learn how important your impact point is to your putting. Look at the impact patterns shown on the following two pages (Figure 4.9.2). These patterns are all authentic test results made by golfers on the first day in our Scoring Game Schools. Note they are arranged by handicap with the lowest handicaps at the top left down to the highest handicaps at the bottom right. Also note that the approximate location of the sweetspot of each putter is indicated by the line near the center of each impact tape.

If you study these patterns carefully the results are clear: The lower the handicap the smaller – and closer to the sweetspot – the impact pattern. In other words the better player hits putts closer to the same area of the putterface. And the best players – the Tour pros – have the smallest impact patterns centered on or very near the sweetspot. In fact looking at the consistent correlation between pattern size and handicap on these pages you might think that impact pattern size was the absolute determinant of a player’s ability to score. Of course this is not true but the implications of this data are undeniable.

There’s a very simple message here: The more consistently a player transfers energy to the ball the better his or her putting touch can become. And the better a golfer ‘ s putting touch the more putts he makes and the lower his handicap. Why? Because consistent transfer of energy enhances one’s ability to control the speed that putts roll which controls not only how far and fast the ball travels and how much it breaks but also the probability of its hitting and staying in the hole.

Proper speed also largely eliminates the chance of three-putting. Above all else good speed control is a requirement for good putting.

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
